The following paper was presented at the American Society for Clinical Oncology (ASCO) genitourinary (GU) conference in San Francisco in February 2019.
Dr Brian Shuch provided a summary and guide to genetic testing for syndromic renal cell carcinoma (RCC). There is an established strong inheritance pattern in kidney cancer, and now there are 15+ recognised monogenic (single-gene related) syndromes. This paper provides recommendations for which patients should be referred for genetic screening.
